  • Here's my reaction to Herxheimer's reaction:

    "Up at Herk-Heimer Falls, where the great river rushes

    And crashes down crags in great gurgling gushes,

    The Herk-Heimer Sisters are using their brushes.

    Those falls are just grand for tooth-brushing beneath

    If you happen to be up that way with your teeth."

    - Dr Seuss, The Sleep Book
